We continue to receive reports and confirmations in reply to our ongoing coverage of PowerBook G4 (Titanium) screen resolution issues. However, more significantly, Apple has now confirmed at least some of these issues with a recent Knowledge Base article. The article reads:
- With Mac OS X Panther, a PowerBook G4 or PowerBook G4 (Gigabit Ethernet) computer may experience issues when the display resolution changes.
- A slideshow doesn't advance when played in Keynote.
- The screen turns a solid blue color or the computer stops responding ("crashes") when you turn on full screen Visuals in iTunes or change the resolution in Display preferences.
DISCUSSION: The computer behaves unexpectedly when you or an application changes the display resolution. Some examples of this behavior include:
Note: This does not affect video on an external display, if one is connected.
Unfortunately, the article does not provide a solution or any further information, stating only "This document will be updated as more information becomes available."
We'll have another report on these issues, and some of the other, apparently unrelated, PowerBook G4 screen issues, tomorrow.
